What is Elbow Up and why do you need it?

Elbow Up is a newsletter, podcast, and community created by youth baseball coach and dad, Kevin Burke. It’s written for parents and coaches, with the intention of helping everyone get the most out of their youth baseball experience.

About Kevin

I’m Kevin Burke, and I’ve made all the mistakes!

On one hand, I’m just another youth baseball coach and parent like you. On the other, I’ve got a little experience in both.

I’ve coached youth baseball for 18 years (5 year olds through high school varsity).

I have an 18 year old that I coached and now coach my 9 year old.

My brother was a first round draft pick of the San Diego Padres in 2006 after signing with then number one ranked Vanderbilt University, and I had a front row seat to that entire process (and I taught him everything he knows 😜).

I’ve attended thousands of baseball games.

I’ve seen (and still see) the good, the bad, and the ugly.

I’d love to share it all with you, and together we can make youth baseball better!


Here is a sample of the content you can expect:

Each Wednesday I send out a new podcast and article to all subscribers! Premium subscribers get the full experience - extra emails and content on Monday and Friday as well as access to my private parent-coach Facebook group, and access to my documents, how-to guides, and coaching templates as they are created!

Wednesday’s podcast and article will ALWAYS be free, but please consider supporting my work with a premium subscription.

🚨 LIMITED TIME: The next 25 subscribers get 33% off FOREVER! 🚨

⚠️ A paid subscription is only $12 a month and financially allows me to continue supporting youth baseball parents and coaches each week (plus you get EXTRA content and benefits)!

⚠️ $12 a month equals roughly $4 per week. My Wednesday episode alone is worth that, but with my Monday and Friday content, you’ll be getting at least 12 pieces of content a month at just $1 each. The long term development of your son or team is worth much more than that!

⚠️ That being said, I want every parent and coach to be as informed as possible to help their kids and players, and I don’t want $12 to be a barrier. If $12 a month is an issue for your family, please email me at kevinburke2 (@) gmail (dot) com and we’ll work something out.

What Readers Are Saying…

Just wanted to tell you that I really love your blog…such great insight, perspective, and information. We played against you in all-stars last year, and I couldn’t believe the difference of the level that your kids were playing at in comparison to everyone else…and now that I see and hear from the leadership they’re under, I can understand why. Thank you, and keep up the great work! - Josh
